Marine Corps 'mishap' off California coast leaves at least 1 dead, 8 missing: military
By: Brie Stimson - Fox News 07-31-20

At least one Marine Corps member was killed Thursday and eight other service members remained missing early Friday after an amphibious assault vehicle “mishap” off the coast of Southern California, the I Marine Expeditionary Force confirmed Friday morning.

1 Marine has died, 8 service members remain missing and 2 were injured after an AAV mishap July 30 off the coast of Southern California. All are assigned to the 15th MEU. Search and rescue efforts are still underway with support from the Navy and Coast Guard.

The Navy and Coast Guard are conducting a joint search-and-rescue operation for the missing service members who are all assigned to the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, headquartered at Camp Pendleton near San Diego.

“We are deeply saddened by this tragic incident," Col. Christopher Bronzi, 15th MEU Commanding Officer, said in a statement. "I ask that you keep our Marines, Sailors, and their families in your prayers as we continue our search."

Amphibious assault vehicles are armored and able to move from water to land.

Note: More information will be posted once the military completes its report?


O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
